In the beginning of my story two girls arrive in their car to a central square of a little European looking town with no single living soul around. They take guns from the trunk, go to a church on this square, spend 10-15 minutes there, no single shot fired, get back into their car and leave. When they leave, a swarm of little creatures follows them in the bushes that grow on the sides of the road out of the town. What's a bit off-beat here is: the driver is aware of what's going on, the passenger looks clueless and nervous. Also, both of the girls are dressed like they're going to a fancy party.
Now, I see this scene very clearly and I'd like to start with it. To make sense out of it, I came to the following conclusions
- this town they have visited is an anomaly
- such anomalies are created by collective subsconsiousness
- unless you know how to find them and enter them, you could only appear in one by chance
- even if you do, there may no be any way for you to experience it again
- for this reason, such encounters were long percepted as being just old wifes tales
- for this reason, no government agency will aim at exploring those (we're not in the X-files universe)
- there is some professor that discovers how to find such anomalies and enter them
- he tells about this only the people he trusts, since he is not sure what can be made out of this if that gets into the wrong hands (for one thing he does not trust men in black with this knowledge)
- the driver girl may be part of this club, she was just going to a party with her female friend and got a call that there's an anomaly nearby that must be contained, so she departs there
- that would explain their attire and different emotions for the heroines
What I don't understand though is what would be a suitable way of entering the realm of such illusion-based anomalies. I think some sort of meditation would be a good idea, but then why the driver girl would appear there
- in the car she was driving in reality
- with a friend of hers that was nearby
- in a dress and on high heels, which is not very comfortable in dangerous places
What I'd like to avoid is the use of external forces (aliens, secret societies etc) since in those case I'd find it hard to believe government agencies won't be looking into this.
